College faculty, staff assist Carson City families
Western Nevada College turned its annual faculty/staff holiday potluck luncheon into another opportunity for sharing the spirit of giving. Along with the casseroles and desserts, more than $300 was collected for the Carson City Circles Initiative.
CCCI helps local families who live in poverty to learn and practice the skills to achieve self-sufficiency, through education and supportive friendships. Participants set their own goals and chart their own course to achieve financial independence. Family members successfully complete a 20-week workshop and are then matched with community members who work with them to achieve their goals. Up to eight families may participate each year. Several program completers have gone on to attend WNC.
CCCI Executive Director Shelly Aldean was a special guest at the college potluck, where she spoke about the success and goals of the organization. WNC Director of Development Katie Leao then presented her with the donation check.
